  1. Meet R2-KT: The Pink Droid Inspired by a Little Girl Who Fought Cancer

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    While this story isn't what you'd call recent, it was so touching that we couldn't ignore it. It's also very sad, so consider yourself warned. But while it's a sad story about a little girl's fight with brain cancer, it's a great story about how a bunch of Star Wars fans (some in very high places) made that little girl happy while she didn't feel very well. It's also an origin story, and we love those. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to Katie Johnson and the droid whose creation she inspired: R2-KT.

  2. They Earn All the Badges: Girl Scouts Punch Thief in the FACE After Cookie Money Robbery

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    The headline speaks for itself: Two Texas Girl Scouts, Iravia Cotton and Rachel Johnson, chased down a horrible person who stole $200 of Girl Scout cookie money from their booth. Iravia punched the guy in the face. Rachel grabbed on to the guy's car and was dragged as he drove away. You might be wondering if they're okay, and I kind of think they've proven they can take care of themselves. Man, the things girls need to do to earn badges these days!

  3. Little Girl Takes Over for Vader in Kinect Star Wars [Video]

    For A More Civilized Age

    Kinect Star Wars, while a bit polarizing for some, is still coming out with pretty wicked advertisements. The last one we saw featured Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt, fighting Darth Vader in his underwear. But now, the Sith Lord is back for revenge, and he has disguised himself -- as a little girl. "I find your lack of ponies disturbing." I'm kidding. She is actually very menacing and serious. Also: Clint Howard! He really is in everything! (via Topless Robot) Previously in Kinect Star Wars

  4. Zoe Rocks the Guitar Better Than You Can [Video]

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    Here is an eight-year-old girl playing serious guitar. Her name is Zoe Thomson, she's from the UK, and she plays in a band called The Mini Band. (You can follow them on Facebook. We thought you should know.) She has also been playing guitar since she was about six, unless there are videos of her that aren't YouTube. Imagine the sheer rockitude if she teamed up with Juliet, she of the badassest hardcore song we brought you last week. Is it blowing your mind? How about this: Imagine what an amazing guitar player Zoe is going to be when she grows up. Mind-boggling. (via Design You Trust) Previously in Awesome Little Girls

    Things We Saw Today

    Make sure every tiny superhero gets her daily helping of whole grain oats. Or else she'll get cranky and tired and end the world as we know it. (via Superheroes Are For Girls, Too!)

  7. This Four-Year-Old Dinosaur Expert Is Not Falling For Your Silly Dinosaur Tricks [Video]

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    Stella, who is four, has some complaints about this Triceratops toy. No, not that the box is pink. No, she is concerned about the inaccuracies and has found three mistakes, such as "the frill," but says "at least they got the beak right." And since she clearly knows her dinosaurs, she says that it would have been a better idea to just call this what it truly is: a Styracocaurus. There is hope for the future after all, Planet Earth!

  8. Cunning Forgery of the Day

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    As someone who has Skyward Sword, Arkham City (look it just came out for PC, okay?), and a brand new World of Warcraft patch to plow through, I could really use something like this. And a life where parental permission could still get me out of my personal obligations. Yeah. That too. (via The Hairpin.)

  9. Bad Mood Medicine: This Is What a Dinosaur Feels Like [Video]

    i swear by my pretty floral bonnet i will end you

    Next time you're in a bad mood, just rustle up your best Nathan Explosion voice, look into a mirror, camera, or reflective window and yell the following: "I AM A DINOSAUR. I DON'T LIKE TO BE CRUSHED." If you don't feel better, then we don't know what else to suggest. Except for pictures of puppies. (via I Heart Chaos)
